Fans of “All My Children” (AMC) and “One Life to Live” (OLTL) take heart! There’s more encouraging news about revivals of those iconic ABC soap operas. Several ex-AMC and OLTL actors confirmed their desires to reprise their fan favorite characters, their portrayers told ABC Soaps In Depth (SID) in its February 13th print edition.
They’d Love to Return to Pine Valley
“I would absolutely be open to it,” said Chrishell Stause of the idea of reprising the role of Amanda Martin on AMC. “Amanda was my favorite character I’ve ever had the honor to portray.”
The incomparable Jill Larson echoed a similar sentiment about once again portraying the wacky Opal Cortland.
“To be reunited with Opal would be like encountering a beloved, long-lost friend,” Larson said.
Cameron Mathison (Ryan Lavery) said getting to play Ryan again would be “so much fun.”
Let’s Go Home, to Llanview
Ilene Kristen has spoken before of her love of OLTL and her character on it, Roxy Balsom.
“Of course!” the soap vet said of returning to the dramatic hamlet of Llanview.
Teri Conn (Aubrey Wentworth) expressed delight at the prospect of revisiting the character she made a Llanview staple.
Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan) and Brittany Underwood (Langston Wilde) spoke of their affection for their OLTL characters as well.
“I’m glad to know our characters may still be alive…out there somewhere,” Woods said.
